Celebrate Valentine's Day 2021

Feb 9, 2021

Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching and with it comes the opportunity to spread a little more love this month! Whether celebrating Galentine’s Day, flying solo, or sharing romance with a loved one, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the holiday at home & around Jersey City. Read ahead and let us guide you through some fantastic ways to have a Valentine’s Day filled with love in 2021! 

Escape to France

Visit the charming Jersey City restaurant Madame Claude to escape to France for Valentine’s Day this year! Madame Claude is offering a $65 prix fixe menu for the occasion, with 2 seatings at 5:00 and 7:30pm. Enjoy a decadent 3-course meal of delicious French cuisine, with an option to dine in-restaurant or at their accompanying theater space while enjoying the musical stylings of house jazz band Manouche Bag. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made by calling 201-876-8800.


Indulge in Some Self-Care

Valentine’s Day is about love in all its forms, so what better moment than now to devote a little extra time to indulging in some special self-care. Carve out some space for dedicated “me time,” whether it’s doing a favorite face mask, drawing a bath, picking up that book there never seems to be enough time for, or ordering in a yummy meal from a local spot.

Paint & Sip

Paint party kits can be purchased through their website, where you can also sign up for their virtual class. Prefer an in-person option? 902 Brewing Co. is hosting an afternoon paint & sip event on Valentine’s Day. $40 will get you entry and a flight of beer! Tickets can be found here.
